    The number of finger vascular pattern datasets available for the research community is scarce, therefore a new finger vascular pattern dataset containing 1440 images is prsented. This dataset is unique in its kind as the images are of high resolution and have a known pixel density. Furthermore this is the first dataset which contains the age, gender and handedness of the participating volunteers as meta data. The images have been captured using a custom designed capturing device. The various aspects of designing this capturing device are addressed in this paper as well. To confirm whether this new dataset is in fact an important contribution some performance figures in terms of EER of several published state-of-the-art algorithms using this new dataset and an existing dataset from the Peking University are presented. Using this new dataset EERs down to 0.4% have been achieved.
